Library – Kiernan Smith

Learn to Read! Read to Learn!

This has been a lifelong motto of mine. I’ve always loved the written word and feel blessed to be able to share my love of books with the students at Saint Ann Catholic School.

I began sharing my love of books as a story teller in Nashville. “Sisters in Storytime” was a springboard from a VBS storytelling experience. My friend and I would perform books aloud to young people at local libraries and schools. This led me to a teaching position for the Nashville City Schools.

My family and I moved to Hartselle in the spring of 2003. I continued my storytelling aspirations at the Decatur Public Library. In 2008, I was offered a position teaching K4 at Saint Ann. The next 8 years were wonderful! I retired in 2015. An opening was available as the school librarian. Naturally I jumped at the opportunity. I served as the school librarian for two years and took a year off for family. I’m excited to say I’m back and have made some major changes to the library with a “make-over”! I can’t for everyone to see what we’ve done!

Happy Reading!
